Victor® Rat Zapper® Ultra Rat Trap Eliminate your rodent problem quickly and effectively with the Victor® Rat Zapper® Ultra Rat Trap. From set-up and use through cleaning and maintenance, each zap will be a snap thanks to the easy-to-use design. The ultra-sized chamber is ideal for targeting larger rats that invade your property. This humane trap kills rodents using a high-voltage shock and since rats are able to restart their hearts, the shock is applied for 2 minutes to ensure higher kill rates. To get started, simply apply a high protein bait in the provided bait cup, place the trap in a location with high rodent activity and turn it on.Best used for:AtticsGaragesBasementsKitchensHigh-Voltage Shock Humanely Kills Rodents The Rat Zapper® Ultra is equipped with smart circuit technology that senses when a rodent enters the trap. Once the rodent is inside, it steps on the metal plates, completing the circuit and the trap delivers a continuous high-voltage shock for 2 minutes to effectively eliminate rat invader. This trap is capable of eliminating up to 60 rats per set of fully charged batteries (4 “D”).LED Light Alerts With the Victor® Rat Zapper® Ultra Rat Trap, simplifying your pest control routine is a breeze. Each time the trap catches a rat, the light on top of the trap flashes red to indicate a kill. You’ll know when it’s time to empty your trap without having to check manually. Plus, the convenient LED light function will not only notify you of a catch, but it will also alert you when the trap’s battery is running low by rapidly flashing red.No-Touch Cleanup With the Rat Zapper® Ultra, cleanup is effortless! Unlike standard rat traps, you don’t have to touch or look at dead rodents. The rat is contained within the kill chamber, which hides it from sight, while the indicator light lets you know when it’s time to empty. After a kill, just tip the trap to discard the dead rodent into the trash without having to touch it.How to Set the Rat Zapper® Ultra For your convenience, the Victor® Rat Zapper® Ultra Rat Trap is very easy to use.

Review RateGood but pricey
These zappers work great, but they're way too expensive.
Review RateWorks great
While we really don't like having to get rid of living things, when they get into your walls, it becomes a necessity. From the first time we put the traps out, they worked. We have nwt gotten the critters that were in the walls. We actually put the traps outside. We bought plastic tubs with detachable lids and cut a hole in one end to protect them from the weather. They work great.
Review RateWorked perfectly.
Put it out, turned my back. Zapped the rat!
Review RatePreferred by mice and rats
I was having trouble with rats and mice in a metal building until I sealed up a hole. Before the fix, I put out three Rat Zappers and four sticky traps. The first night the Rat Zappers were 3 for 3, while the sticky traps were 0 for 4. Rats and mice definitely prefer the Rat Zappers, and they are a much more humane way to end the rodent problem.
A field near my home was recently cleared and rats moved into my garage. I have a cat and dog so didn’t want to use poison. After baiting with dog food the zapper killed two rats in two nights. Well worth the money. Disposal is easy And there is no mess
Review RateWASTE OF MONEY!!!
I'm SORRY I WASTED so MUCH MONEY!!! I bought the three pack, one was put together wrong. I called and customer service was GREAT and sent me a new one. I took a chance, and it was an expensive chance! Did NOT WORK! I put regular rat traps near the Rat Zappers and they got a rat every time, NOTHING in the Rat Zapper! EXPENSIVE LESSON!!! I recommend stick with the tried and true.....SNAP TRAP!Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear about this experience. Rodents will go to bait that is out in the open, like what is on a snap trap, before they go to bait that is concealed, like the bait inside this product. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with any questions.
Great Products Killed mice moles rats easily and no mess just dump them out, Used same bait over and over. I have a dog so no worries with poisons
Review RateWorks Great When it Works
Bought 3 late in the season last year so only put them out this year 2 weeks ago for the first time. Was amazed the first night we got a rat. Next day a mouse. Second night …. it rained. Brought them in to dry them out … green light didn't come on when we turned them back on. Changed the batteries …. nothing. Since we had only put 2 out we put the same batteries in the unused unit. Light came on fine. So if you think it is going to rain bring them it because apparently they don't like the rain. Very disappointed we are down to one unit and that they wasn't anything noted about the fact they don't like the rain.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! This trap is designed for indoor use only. Using the trap outdoors could cause the unit to malfunction and will also void the warranty. We apologize for any confusion!

Review RateSo far so good
Second night having trap in carport got a rat. Have been catching mice almost nightly. Working very well so far.
Review RateRat Zapper Ultra is the best for Successful and Clean kills
We purchased 3 more Rat Zappers as backups because we don't want to be without them as we live next to an open space with oaks that attract a lot of wildlife to our house. Used them since about 2010 and have killed about 200 rodents--mice, rats, and even some squirrels. We mostly use them outside, checking them daily for kills to quickly dispose of them, and bring the Zappers inside when it rains. We used one in the attic once and caught a rodent within 2 days. We use dog bisquits as bait. These Zappers are the best product we have found for this.
Rat Zapper® Ultra Trap - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Where do I place the trap?
A: Place the trap along the wall where rodents primarily travel or where you have seen signs of rodent activity. Rats are wary critters and they’ll initially avoid anything new in their environment. Good news is we’re smarter than they are! It may take a few days or nights for the first rat to enter your trap but be patient!
Q: How do I bait the trap?/What should I use to bait the trap?
A: To bait the Rat Zapper®, first make sure the trap is turned off. Place the bait along or on the back wall of the trap. Be sure to use gloves or a tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap. We’ve carefully researched dry pet food and found it an excellent lure. Other dried baits (nuts, dehydrated fruit, etc.) can also work well. Goopy Bait Note: Please don’t place moist or goopy bait in your Rat Zapper® unless you place it in a plastic container, like a medium plastic bottle cap, and then slide it to the back of your Rat Zapper®. (Otherwise you may goop the electronics and/or falsely trip the system.)
Q: How do I clean the trap?
A: Through repeat use and baiting, dust and debris can settle on the metal plates inside the trap, so we recommend that you clean your trap between each use. To clean the trap:
- Turn the unit to the off position and remove the batteries
- Use a hydrogen peroxide topical solution (available at most drug stores) and an old toothbrush to clean the inside of the chamber. Use a wire brush as needed to remove any corrosion, being careful not to be too vigorous. This could accidentally remove all of the protective zinc plating
- Allow the Rat Zapper® Ultra Rat Trap to air dry completely
- Replace the batteries and turn the unit back on
Q: What type of batteries do I need?
A: The Rat Zapper® Ultra requires 4 “D” alkaline batteries which will provide approximately two years of stand-by power. Use high quality alkaline batteries to ensure the best results.
Q: What may affect the effectiveness of an electronic trap?
A: To ensure that your trap works when it is supposed to, keep the metal plates clean so the trap won’t trigger at the wrong time.
- Don’t over-bait, as excess food could drop onto the plates and activate the trap, after which any rodent may safely enter to remove the food.
- Make sure that the plates are clear of any debris, especially urine or hair from a recent kill that may interfere with the unit’s proper function. Remember, both plates need to be clean so that the electric circuit is made complete by the rodent stepping on both.
Q:What does it mean when the light blinks green? Red?
A: When you turn on the trap, the green light will stay on for 2 seconds to confirm the trap is on. Then the light is supposed to go off. The red light will blink to indicate a successful kill; however, in order to conserve battery, it only flashes about every 7 seconds. A rapid blinking red light indicates that the batteries are running low and will need to be replaced.
